About time I wrote something about what I have started working on. Ok, it is going to be on MSP430 Programming. MSP430 are basically Mixed Signal Processors by TI ( Texas Instruments ) and are quite famous. They are helpful in advanced applications of micro-controllers and are generally low powered.
Ok, so we need to program this micro-controller. For that purpose, we will be needing an interface to do so. Ubuntu 12.04 (and its earlier versions) have packages for MSP430. You can follow the detailed installation instructions on this blog.
